    Description

    Charles Vess The Cats of Tanglewood Forest et Seq. Original Art (Little, Brown, 2003). Vess' background as a comic-book artist -- especially on Swamp Thing and suchlike allegorical fantasies -- makes him a natural fit for Charles de Lint's Tanglewood series, where Vess has delivered some of the most engaging wood-spirit images ever to grace the printed page. This lovely composition features two key cat-characters in communion with the Apple Tree Man, no doubt a distant cousin of the Swamp Thing and even likelier a descendant of Jack Kirby's seminal tree creature of 1960, Groot. Ink and watercolors over graphite on heavyweight Bristol board. Image area, 15" x 16.75". Excellent condition.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
